Crickets invade downtown open spaces and offices...

Thursday - July 21, 2011

A lot to tell you about tonight at 10...so let's get started.

In some Asian countries they're revered.  Around here folks use 'em for fish bait. they're used for fish bait!  Regardless of how you feel about them...they're EVERYWHERE in downtown Montgomery.  At 10, we'll find out what's so attractive about that part of town.

Earlier tonight we reported on the discovery of more than 100,000 honey bees in a giant hive inside an abandoned house downtown.  In case you missed it, we'll show you what it looked, sounded and tasted like!

Then we're off to the Federal Courthouse for the latest on the state house corruption trial.  Prosecution witness Jennifer Pouncy said she was clarifying some earlier statements to FBI agents investigating allegations of vote buying and selling.  And, she said two defendants never asked for money from her while she worked as a lobbyist for Country Crossing in Dothan.

Will the NFL Players Union members accept a deal offered today by NFL owners?  We'll have the latest on the deal that could save the NFL season.

Plus we'll set the record straight on an aspect of a story from 10 last night.

And, we'll tell you about a brand new WSFA 12 News app for your iPhone and Droid.  It's cleaner and loaded with features.

Then, Rich updates the middle-90's weekend forecast.

See you on the set. AND - don't forget to follow me on TWITTER - @bobhowell_wsfa.  THANKS!
